Inge and Holger Thomasen have been married for a lifetime. They have travelled the world and have three children, each born on a different continent. Now they are over eighty years old and live in their own lush jungle north of Copenhagen, growing orchids, coffee and oranges brought home from their many journeys. But the time is approaching when they will have to move. 'On the Way to Paradise' is a tale of growing old with dignity and wisdom, of sticking together, of collecting the objects, impressions and experiences of a lifetime; and of passing these on.
